No matter how delusional some of the people that I’ve known for years, have become, no matter how shocking the level of political paranoia they’ve reached, in spite of the vitriol and vulgarity they’ve spew,
I have resolved to remain civil and non-aggressive, and after this debacle of democracy runs its course, I will still maintain a cordiality with them.
I do have to admit, that in some cases I continue to be sadly amazed at how seemingly rational, educated people could act this way.
Other friends, I’ve always been aware of their political bent and have accepted their views as part of their personalities and a result of their social, economic and educational backgrounds,
In either case, there’s no sense in trying to argue or discuss. They’ve closed their minds to reality and live in their alternate universes.
